  • Targeted Trigger Point & Stress Therapy

  • Is working from home your new norm? Is the office stress getting to you?

    Trigger point therapy or pressure point massage is a soft tissue method that helps to alleviate uncomfortable muscle and fascia tension that is typically manifested as a muscle knot. Pressure point massage therapy can be approached in a variety of ways, including soft tissue work, deep tissue massage, dry needling, and ischemia pressure.

    Trigger points have the appearance of little marbles or knots just beneath the skin. Many people experience no pain or discomfort when pressing on trigger points. At times, trigger points become extremely sensitive, and some people experience substantial pain in trigger point locations.

    The location of a trigger point or muscle knot might vary from person to person. Tissue tension can be found in any region of muscular tissue. This might be a tipping moment. Trigger points are more frequently seen in the following body parts: 

    Your upper trapezius muscles on either side of your neck just above your shoulders

    • Your calf muscles
    • Along with your iliotibial band
    • Your quadratus lumborum muscles of your low back
    • Your hamstrings

    When a muscle is harmed, inflammation occurs. The body detects this and responds with pain, prompting you to protect the muscle in order to avoid further damage. Trigger point therapy’s pressure reprograms the neuromuscular system, resulting in pain reduction. This induces a return of the muscles to their normal state. This promotes healing by reducing inflammation and relieving pain and tightness in the individual.


    Pressure point therapy may be beneficial for a variety of conditions, including the following: 

    • Muscle damage 
    • Muscle constriction 
    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Injury caused by repetitive strain

    It is ideal to get trigger point therapy 1-2 times a week. Once a week is still good too. 

    Everyone’s healing process is unique. In general, you should anticipate having two or three sessions of pressure point therapy before noticing a noticeable difference.
